One of my online scrappy friends shared a large piece of artwork like this on her Instagram feed and I knew that I was inspired to make one for my in-laws for Christmas. In the end they'll get it after because Dala liked it so much that we're going to offer it as a class at Soul Sentiments after the new year.
The map is a Silhouette Studio file and I used Jillibean Soup Sightseeing Stew. Some of the "A" sides of the papers were a little iffy for this project, but those "B" sides were perfect, almost at the same scale as a 6x6 pad and just the right colors.
Yes, those are real book pages. Torn from a paperback that was falling apart and not worth repairing, so they got a new life, decoupaged under the map.
Have you ever made something as a gift for someone and had to wait to gift it for a silly reason like that?
